BEIRUT: Twenty-three civilians including nine children were killed in air strikes on a town in eastern Syria held by the Islamic State extremist group on Thursday, a monitor said.
Toll from strikes on Syria’s Idlib jumps to 58
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it did not know whether Syrian regime or Russian warplanes carried out the strikes on Al-Mayadin in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor.
A US-Russian brokered truce in force since Monday does not include areas where IS is present.
